The 2021 internship will be completely virtual, offering undergraduate students opportunities to actively participate in small group learning focused on aging, clinical issues in gerontology, and interprofessional competencies. Working collaboratively, interns will develop a better understanding of aging and develop competencies in seniors care through daily interaction in ALPHA – a simulation and game-based Accelerator for Learning Inter-Professionally in Healthcare App. In addition, interns will have the opportunity to engage with residents. Interns will also be teamed with a mentor and will participate in an innovative project.
